LIFT Bar Grill View
For a quintessential Vancouver experience, LIFT sets the stage with sweeping harbour, Stanley Park and coastal mountain views and the city's only oceanfront rooftop deck. A sexy, sophisticated restaurant and lounge, LIFT is located on the tranquil seawall in picturesque Coal Harbour minutes from Vancouver's financial district, major hotels and the Vancouver Convention Centre. A showcase of stunning architectural design, LIFT west coast hospitality. Enjoy a fresh perspective on regionally sourced specialties and the bounty of the Pacific Ocean.From floor-to-ceiling windows that vanish in the summer to an illuminated honey onyx bar and inviting outdoor fireplaces, soak in the relaxed yet elegant setting.
Varied and adventurous menu generally biased to seafood but has a great lobster mac and cheese. One of the best Caesar salads around. Bartender staff are just great. Scallops are too good.
Great service! The chef was very accommodating of dietary restrictions.
Our meal was excellent. Very good value. Staff were courteous and very friendly all in all it was a great experience
Beautiful view with reasonable prices. Also got a couple of freebies from the bartender. Really attentive service, and nice and quiet so you can talk to your party. My favourite Vancouver restaurant!
Such an amazing spot! From the top notch staff, to the amazing food and beverages. Felt very comfortable in this COVID age. 10/10 would go again!
We had a wonderful time, enjoyed all of the elements of our meals and had the BEST service. We would go back in a heart beat.
I even got complimentary creme brulee for my birthday. Outstanding. Thank you. The sea bass was stellar.
it has a beautiful location on the water and and although we went in the evening in fall picture and feel how spectacular it would be on a nice sunny summer evening with the windows open and fresh air. The food was amazing and a nice simple selection so you don't have to spend too much time trying to decide between multiple choice in the same food group , fin , fowl our hoof. Appetizers were a meal all on their own - good portions.
We will be back !
First time there, loved the view and would recommend to friends.
Would recommend to others,
The services was amazing
The Saturday afternoon menu was very limiting. There was nothing on there I wanted to order. I ended up with the oysters but I would expect more sauces, the prawn tempura was very fishy so probably not fresh, the lobster Mac and cheese was runny and unflavourful. The hostess was very rude, I think some more training in how to explain new policies politely would be a good idea. The sever was decent. Over all I was very disappointed, yes, the view is beautiful but that was done by nature and not the restaurant.
Our server was lovely. The rolls on the happy hour menu were delicious.
You pay for the view but it's a very relaxing bar for a few drinks and a bite. Drinks, food and service cannot be criticized. Parking next door is easy and, with reservations, you are seated immediately.
I still prefer crossing the bridge and checking out the many options on the shore though.
A Sunday brunch during the pandemic. Good protocols. Great view from upstairs and semi open air. No propane in one of the space heaters. Isn't it someone's job to ensure that the heaters work? Hollandaise sauce on bennys was very poor. It was explained to me that I could not choose the temperature of my burger as they do not grind the meat on premises but what I did not expect was a commercial pre -formed patty which by its nature must have been from frozen. Prices are not cheap. What did I like? The booth. The view. The feeling of normalcy. I would choose another place next time.
Everything was wonderful as usual. Thanks for a lovely brunch!
Amazing service and food.
I have no issue paying for quality food. However, the Caesar salad was ridiculous. $18 and it was tiny and maybe average in quality. You pay for a caesar at Hy’s but you get an amazing salad. I would come back in summer for appies and a drink on the rooftop but not for dinner. For that, there are much better choices.
Everything is perfect!
If you like sea food the Lift is one of the best. Located in a most “romantic” setting with easy access.
food is always delicious here. my favorite place for brunch
I expected that COVID would disrupt things more than it did. A very enjoyable evening. Thank you.
We had a 4 pm reservation in the patio. We requested seating with heaters. We were seated with no service at our table for almost 30 min. Had to go see the hostess to request heaters to be turned on and get a server for drinks and food. Had to get manager to get heaters on. All propane tanks were empty. Once server same food and drink were good.
Amazing food and service, with a view! can't go wrong. Highly recommend the lobster mac and cheese
Amazing atmosphere always I love going there. Great service
Great view and delicious food
Lift is right on the harbour so the views and ambiance are lovely. The food is excellent. We'll be back!
Very nice patio to celebrate events. Service and food is good.
Beautiful water view. Great happy hour specials.
The restuarant is too pricy for the food they offer.
It was a hit...first class night
Thank you xo
We dined with a friends from out of town so we wanted to take advantage of the view. We had a table on top patio . The weather cooperated and outdoor heaters took the chill off. The service was great and the food delicious! I still think about my crunchy roll . A lot!
We had reservations for the restaurant and arrived & were seated early. We did however wait an extraordinary amount of time for our food and it was mediocre. I think this place has ambitions beyond its capabilities. For the price, location and hype we were disappointed with the delivery.
great food and service nice views and great parking
I seat at the patio for dinner but I notice that the heater not working well. I would like suggest make sure all heater are working due to October weather starting cold when we seat at patio. One more suggestion, consider to have more vegan menu for customers. Anyway I will come back in near future.
Dinner was great. Our server was Natasha and she was very helpful. I went with two friends and we all had the one piece Halibut and chips it was very good and portions were great.
One of the best views in Vancouver.
Their happy hour seating used to be very limited in the bar-currently while the upstairs patio is still open, the ground level bar area has expanded to much more seating capacity. What a bonus. Excellent calamari and spicy tuna roll. They used to have more sushi on the happy hour menu...please bring it back!
Love the brunch here! I visit almost weekly. Highly recommend the Crab Hash!
Beautiful view and exceptional food.
Clean restaurant, food portion are very small for the price, cream brulee was very bitter not sure how they made them. drink menu is pages but food limited option i was a bit disappointed. Beautiful restaurant, timely service, polite and clea. I wish the restaurant would add more sea food on their menus and the portion wish was more adequate. without started i would leave hungry
It was an amazing experience. The ambience and view are unmatched. Service and food was super! Overall very happy as the first time visitors!
